We actually emailed back and forth on this for almost 2 weeks. I still can't figure out why....

    Strange... especially for a symbolic ceremony. I have not emailed to ask, I guess I feel like I get faster answers from this forum. I wonder if they would count the weekend days as days in advance. Maybe I should email the resort and see what they say.

      Hey, this is how Natalia responded to my email regarding our arrival date "Yes symbolic wedding allowed three day before the wedding as arrival time"

      My email: Natalia, My wedding has been set for November 28, 2009. I am in the process of booking our airfare and would like to confirm our arrival date of Wednesday, November 25, 2009 given the Thanksgiving holiday and weekend. I will be having a symbolic ceremony and getting married legally in the U.S. It is my understanding that with the symbolic ceremony we only need to be in Mexico 3 days before the wedding (weekend and holidays day are allowed).

          Hi everyone,

          as i understand it, you only have to be there 3 days before for the legal ceremony, not the symbolic. The reason for the 3 days is that is Mexican Law but if you are only doing a symbolic ceremony and you are married in the US you shouldn't have a problem. I am arrived on wednesday and having my symbolic ceremony on Saturday. I haven't heard there were any issues with that. Nothing in my ceremony is binding with Mexican law. Anyone else had this experience?

              Calling all DT brides...If you did the ultimate dreams package for your wedding, how long did it take until you recieved your 30minute DVD of your ceremony from the resort and what about the pictures the resort photographer took...how long did that take? Can I take them home with me when I leave? I am trying to figure this out due to our state side reception and I would like to have my wedding ceremony video to show and also add the resort photographers pictures to our slide show! As of right now the stateside reception is scheduled the weekend after we get back, but now i am thinking maybe we should schedule it further out if i have to wait on these items...? Thanks for your help!!

                Hey ladies, I'm about to order about 20 lanterns. Should I get 12 inches or 14 inches?

                  Tisha - You will receive the DVD and the pictures (which they print and burn on a CD for you) before you leave DT. I'm not sure how long it actually takes them, but we picked them up a few days after our wedding day. So, as long as you don't leave DT right after the wedding, you should be able to get everything in hand.

                      I thought so too.... Aurora kept telling us we had to be there 3 Business days before the wedding. But, we got it settled!!

                      I have a site visit coming up in a few weeks... WAY EXCITED to finally see the resort!
